Our Out-Of-Town Sponsors

Here at the 7 Bridges Marathon, we’re proud of the sponsorship and engagement that’s developed within our community around Chattanooga and North Georgia, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t hit the radar of others around the country. Read on to learn more about two of our long-distance sponsors.

Space Camp: Huntsville, Alabama
What kid hasn’t heard of Space Camp? Founded in 1982 to promote the study of math, science, and technology, Space Camp trainees get to experience astronaut simulators, take command of a mission to the International Space Station, and develop leadership and teamwork skills.

The trainees at Aviation Challenge® Camp are put to the ultimate test as they fly high-performance jet simulators, hone land and water survival skills, and practice leadership.

Space Camp Robotics trainees get to experience air, land and sea-based robots during their week-long stay at camp. Teams navigate waters using the Office of Naval Research SeaPerch robotics program, fly unmanned aircraft in our simulators, and engineer their own robots to compete in a space challenge.

Space Camp programs are available for adults, with special camps designed for educators and corporate groups. Family Camp Programs are available for children ages 7 and older.

GU Energy Labs: Berkeley, California
Since 1993, everyone at GU has been committed to propelling athletes to the next level by providing long-lasting energy, muscle-rebuilding fuel and protection, and natural hydration in a gel, powder, drink, or capsule.

This sports nutrition company began with the original GU Energy Gel, a revolutionary and effective method to keep athletes fueled and ready to seize the day. Since then, GU has continued to improve their recipe and introduce new products which make use of the latest scientific research. 2001 saw the launch of GU Electrolyte Brew as the hydration companion to their Energy Gel. They continued to innovate with their Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel, Chomps Energy Chews and GU Recovery Brew. They formulate their products to further their mission: To help athletes go faster and longer than ever before.
